Mar 29, 2010
At Baselworld 2010, Breitling is proud to present its new Superocean watch. Initially introduced in 1957, the diver’s instrument has over time gained a legendary status in the world of Diving and Horology.

The new Breitling Superocean watch has inherited the technical peculiarities of the 1957 model, having acquired a totally new look.

Your attention will be caught by a rubber-moulded ratcheted unidirectional rotating bezel completed with sloping numbers and markers accentuating the watch’s its technical nature and challenging spirit.

The highly legible face of the new Breitling watch reflects the vigorous design of its predecessor. It features oversized Superluminova hands, applique Arabic numerals and hour-markers presented against the black Abyss dial, surrounded by a blue, yellow, red, silvered or black bevelled flange, the color of which is echoed by the tip of the seconds hand.

The 42mm case of the watch is crafted from stainless steel. The face of the watch is shielded by a double-sided anti-reflective convex sapphire crystal.

Created for professional divers, fitted with all the attributes of a professional diver’s instrument, the Breitling Superocean boasts outstanding 1,500-metre water-resistance (compare it to 200-meter water-resistance of the original model). The watch is fitted with a screw-down crown and a safety valve used for automatic releasing of the accumulated helium, with the internal over-pressure running up to about 3 bar.

The heart of the new Breitling watch is an automatic movement - Breitling 17 calibre, the precision of which is crowned by COSC-chronometer certification. The 25-jewel movement operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The mechanism animated the following functions - hours, minutes, seconds and date.

The new Breitling Superocean watch, reviewed by Watches.InfoNIAC.com, is coupled with a Diver Pro or Ocean Racer strap in rubber, or a Professional steel bracelet.
